The Los Angeles Lakers lead the series 3-1.

They can eliminate the Rockets with a win in Los Angeles in game 5! Go Lakers!

Lets finish it now. Closing out a team is the hardest thing to do. Its back at home. Kobe has got a trial all day, but honestly, i think thats a good thing, it tends to mean hes having a big game.

LET CLOSE IT OUT. BRING ON DA SPURS

Most definetly, the Los Angeles crowd is going to be fired up. They will definetly help the home team put this series away.

I feel like the Lakers have enough momentum, from game 4, to put this series away. Let's go Lakers!

Malone needs to play like he has in Games 2-4 of this series, if he does then we will win. We will be at home and he has been playing great basketball. Shaq needs to have another solid game, but with fewer fouls. Payton needs to play almost the entire game. And the bench has to step up, since Kobe's status is unknown.

I don't care what happens (Kobe shows up late, GP doesn't play well, and so forth) as long as the Lakers win Game 5. This Rockets team is tough and no telling what will happen if this series goes on. :man3:

I think we might go back to our dynamic duo in this game and Payton and Malone will step up, our bench won't produce too much but with the help from GP and Malone we'll be fine. We're at home baby! We're bringing it home! Lets just hope Memphis can give the Spurs a tough time today.

This is the end for Houston and Yao :bricks: . We are playing at home, and after sunday special delivery Mailman realy hears call of the ring, so he will have another superb game.

:bow:

Oh, i almost forgot about Kobe, he will come just in time, after a trial, so i am sure this will be his best game in the series.

Kobe will show up late and the Lakers will win.

Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

BEST VIDEO EVER ... AND AND THE SECOND BEST.

A must win. We must close out this series. I think Shaq needs to have a huge game like in game 1 and so does Karl. Especially if Kobe can't play. But even if Kobe does play we need Shaq to step up big time. And if Kobe doesn't play at all, of course I say we lose big time.

I predict a late laker victory, sparked by the one and only KOBE.

Rockets 85

If the Lakers kept the energy and emotion we will be a terrorizing force to be reckoned with though out the playoffs...
